South Carolina has a holiday designated driver program

Now that the holiday season is here, South Carolina wants all residents and visitors to be able to spend their time with loved ones. Law makers don't want anyone to have to spend the holiday in jail because of drunk driving, and they don't want families to have to mourn the loss of a loved one who was killed in a drunk driving accident.

In an effort to keep drunk drivers off the roads, law makers have come up with the SANTA designated driver program. This program, the Sober All Night Totally Awesome designated driver program, aims to ensure that anyone who is going to participate in the consumption of alcohol has a safe way to get home.

The initiative began in 2011 and was such a success that the state opted to continue using it. The involvement of SANTA designated drivers isn't limited only to individuals. Instead, public transportation companies, taxi cab operators, and the South Carolina Hospitality Association have all stepped in to play parts in this campaign.

If you find that you need a ride home because you have been drinking, consider finding a designated driver or taking another form of transportation. Staying out of the driver's seat after you have had alcohol is one sure-fire way that you can avoid criminal charges for drunk driving.

In the event you do drink and drive and are caught, you need to get to work on a defense right away. Think carefully about each decision you make while dealing with authorities and be sure that you carefully consider possible consequences of each choice.
